I just love these Mason Jar Oil Lamps we just discovered! Not only can you use a variety of different oils, but they will be cheaper to run than regular candles – and by adding spices or a few drops of your favorite essential oils, you can create your own wonderful custom aromas that will fill the space with a golden vibe!

It’s yet another creative way to use the glorious Mason Jar. You could also use bigger jars if you want something really long lasting – and these oil lamps make great survival kit items – giving you an additional potential light/heat source in times of need. I imagine that pretty much any vegetable oil could be used – so it’s a good way to use up old vegetable oils that seem a little ‘past it’ or lower grade than you would like to use for the kitchen.

One thing that’s important – please be sure to follow similar safety procedures as when using ordinary candles: Don’t leave them unattended; place them on a safe, flat, stable burn-proof surface (a large earthenware plate or similar; be sure to place them somewhere they can’t get knocked over, our of the reach of children or pets – and last but not least, don’t leave them underneath / close to a curtain or other combustible materials. The heat from a candle flame can travel straight up a surprising distance if the air is still. These lamps should certainly be made and used with adult supervision.
